  • The Curse of the Werewolf

    I can't let Halloween go by without watching a Hammer horror film and this one is perfect for a dark night late in October. It is spiced with plenty of the Hammer studios flavours, a menacing monster portrayed by a charismatic actor, impressively detailed Gothic sets, bright colourful costumes, an urgent and overwrought soundtrack, an absorbing story steeped in folklore and splashes of deep red blood. Like the Universal monsters before them, the Hammer characters were prone to sequel-itis, but the first time out of the chute director Terence Fisher managed to knock all the debut films out of the park. So it is with this one. Hammer never did revisit the Werewolf so this movie was not burdened with the diminishing returns of evolving into a franchise. It holds up very well as a stand alone feature and as many before me have mentioned, it is very much a dark nasty fairy tale. One of the better werewolf movies I've seen and in the pantheon of Hammer films, it stands near the top with classics like "The Horror of Dracula" and "The Hound of the Baskervilles". Four stars.

    Oliver Reed and his girl play a very convincing pair as doomed lovers in this rendition of the werewolf series. Very sad but very doomed relationship. Shows very clearly the way one should protect their soul from close contamination with evil. In the movie Reed was especially subject to these forces of evil. Would he have been able to protect himself if he had stayed pure. We can only speculate.

  • One of the best

    If you like werewolf stories, this is a good one. Cast includes Oliver Reed. He and others all shine.

  • A Fresh approach to 'The Wolf Man'

    • Dan Grissom
    • 8/12/12

    Hammer Films' first werewolf movie is a fresh approach and is set in Spain. It unfolds almost like a fairy tale and is very serious in its approach. A young Oliver Reed does a great job soliciting sympathy as the werewolf and the make-up by Roy Ashton just might be the best werewolf make-up ever in the movies. Three stars due to the story being a little slow in the middle.
